Today friends are on my mind.

I just found out that my dear friend Lisa, who writes Midwestern Mommy, has cancer. She is 35. She has a little guy--a family. This can't be. I wish I lived closer so I could do something, anything. Please go send her your thoughts. She's much tougher than she thinks she is, but I imagine she's going to need all the support we can muster right now.

I reached out to two friends today in desperate need to talk, and two friends were there for me. I want them to know how much their loving ears meant to me.

Redsy and D, thank you.

D, you let me know that I'm not alone when most people (you know who I mean) wouldn't want to.

Redsy, you gave me a new perspective from which I now see potential rather than just barriers.

These three friends are on my mind today. I love each of you.

How tragic. I'm so sorry to hear about your friend...this is when life puzzles me. And angers me.

She is in my prayers.

And you...

I'm always here for ya.

You have such a big and tender heart, Amie. There should be more people like you.

Will never understand the unfairness of it all... sorry to hear your news.

While it's somewhat sad, I know for a fact that many many people have found comfort and strength from Adrian Sudbury at Baldy's Blog...


... you'd have to go through his archives to get an idea about it or check the posts on my page for a brief synopsis... he's incredibly honest and helps people understand what treatment is like etc.

And we love you.

You are such a beautiful person. When I talk about you that is exactly how I describe you. I don't mean just physical beauty but also a beautiful soul.
